 I rcvd these as a hostess gift, 

and I can tell you they are quite yummy!

 Emeril's Spiced Nuts

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups mixed nuts, such as walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts and almonds

Directions

Mix spices and reserve.
Heat nuts in a dry skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until begin to toast, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside. Add the butter, sugar, water and spices to the hot skillet and cook, stirring, until a glaze forms, about 1 minute. Return the nuts to the skillet and toss to combine with the glaze. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until the nuts  are glazed and golden brown.
Remove from the heat and transfer to a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, separating with a fork. Let rest until cooled and the sugar has hardened, about 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
